Pasta Casalinga is a casual Tuesday-Sunday spot in Pike Place Market serving Italy-level bowls of handmade pasta for under $10. Their menu rotates based on which fresh ingredients they have from the “ocean,” “garden,” and “farm,” and features things like rigatoni with lamb and juniper berry ragu, or spaghettoni with kale pesto. Everything comes out piping hot with a sprinkling of parmesan (as it should), and the ricotta chocolate crostata is incredible for dessert.
